Even though none of the natives here are celebrating my favorite American holiday, I am in Thanksgiving mode. We’re having dinner with some friends (some American, some not) here in Paris this evening. We’ll try to stream the (American) footballs games while we eat our turkey and stuffing and drink our lovely French wine and maybe some champagne, too.
Come to think of it, every nation should have such a holiday – no gifts required, just food on the table and your family. One could argue that people in other countries spend more time on a daily basis sharing time with family and friends and appreciating what they have. I would agree with that statement. But even so, Thanksgiving is a pretty neat holiday and one thing the U.S. does right.
But really, the whole point of this day is to take time to consider all of the things that we’re thankful for, which I have spent the morning doing. A few specific things come to mind:
And there are a million other little things, too, that I won’t list here.
Hope you’re enjoying some laughter and good food with your friends and families ~
